A collage of various word relating to fonts and typing (font, Serif, Verdana, Size, Text, Arial, Characters, etc.)

I hadn’t worked with them for that long, but it was clear they were not happy. The faces said it all. We’d been going around and around with our savvy, and expensive external branding team on fonts for several weeks. This is a conversation worth having as fonts say a great deal about a message and a brand. Yet, I know the designers wanted us to go with something more unique, and perhaps edgier. Ultimately, we disappointed them with our choice; Verdana. I can almost hear every other designer reading this thinking, ‘Verdana?!? That boring, spaced-out, digital font born of…

Did you know that July was Disability Pride Month? Did you know that the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) is 31 years old?
